Nothing to do at this side of the island, there are other place with blue beaches and white sand named las terrenas at samana, I don't know why they stop at the worst place in samana, las terrenas is better and they don't need to going to deep into the bahia.
Nothing to do at samana.
Nice and easy to walk, nearby stores, marshalls, cvs, old navy, etc. good prices for drinks and food.
Small town, you can drive around the whole city in one hour, nice and clean, not to much to do in town, just visiting beaches, if you are going to rent a car, make sure you have cash for gas, none gas station takes credit cards, was a nightmare to get cash at st.. Marteen
Expensive rent a car 130 buck for a few hours an old jeep at reynolds rent a car, better if you choose big names as hertz, budget.
To much to do not enough time to stay, everything was amazing, easy city, everything at your hands! 68 bucks for rent a car whole day at budget!! Really cheap
